No, I like having councillors that see council as their top priority, not their hobby. Cut-rate councillors means politics are a sport for the rich or the easily-bought.

For me, I have a simpler design: 1) Approval voting or IRV for council and mayor. 2) More power to the mayor's office - the mayor is the name the public has heard of, the mayor needs more power. The media does not give voters the tools to realistically assess the success or failure of councilmembers, and so they should not have that kind of power if they are unaccountable.
